Undergraduate Majors & Programs

Undergraduates have many options through Letters & Science, including majors, minors and certificates. Certificates are similar to minors in credit load but the coursework comes from several different disciplines instead of just one department.

Many classes are offered online or in a blended format that mixes in-person elements with online elements. Five majors can be completed entirely online.

Contact us with questions. Students who are not yet enrolled at UWM can call(414) 229-7711 or email let-sci@uwm.edu. Current L&S students, please contact your Letters & Science advisor. If you are a UWM student looking to switch from your current program into L&S, you can call (414) 229-4654 to make an appointment with an advisor or complete this form and bring it to Holton 142.
